Support Jilly from Healthy Minds in the Marathon

Posted on

Just a reminder that on Sunday 28 April, Team Healthy Minds will be collectively running 26 miles (on a treadmill at the piece hall) in support of Jilly, who at the same time will be running the London marathon, for Healthy Minds.

This young lady is just one of the kind volunteers, who is generously giving up some of her time to help to reach the target on the treadmill. If you would like to help with part of the 26 mile run, feel free to join them at The Wellbeing Festival – taking place at The Piece Hall, they will be there 10:00am-4:30pm.

They are hoping to raise £260 for their efforts, that’s just £10 per mile! Please support this worthy cause by donating what you can by visiting the Facebook page!

Don’t forget Safespace the  Out-of-hours weekend support for adults in Calderdale is open Friday, Saturday & Sunday every week from 6:00pm until late. Safespace is a place of safety for people experiencing mental distress or approaching crisis.
